Errol Spence is in a ‘serious condition’ after being involved in a high-speed car crash in his hometown of Dallas.
The police have said a Ferrari flipped multiple times, ejecting the driver (reported to be Spence) who was not wearing a seatbelt, according to CBS.
They added that the driver was taken to hospital and is expected to survive the crash, which took place in the northbound lanes of the 500 block of S. Riverfront Boulevard.
An update issued by Spence’s representatives PBC confirmed the incident to Lance Pugmire: “Errol’s injuries aren’t life threatening. His parents are with him. We don’t have details yet. But I’ll keep you updated.”
In the latest videos posted to his Instagram story last night, the boxer was partying at a bar with friends.
There is no indication alcohol played a part in the incident so far, with police continuing to investigate the cause.
On September 28, Spence defeated Shawn Porter in a WBC & IBF welterweight title unification.
It was the biggest moment of the 29-year-old’s career to date.
Now, his future has been thrust into uncertainty.
Former opponent Kell Brook took to social media to react.
The ex-IBF champion, who Spence dethroned in 2017, said: “Get well soon champ! Thought are with you and wishing you a full and speedy recovery.”
